WWE SummerSlam 2026: Early Match Predictions for Two-Night Spectacular in Minneapolis

wwe summerslam 2026

WWE SummerSlam is the company’s second-biggest Premium Live Event of the year after WrestleMania, often quoted as ‘The Biggest Party of the Summer.’ Throughout the years, SummerSlam has delivered some of the most iconic matches and memorable moments in the history of the WWE and now this mega event is set to be twice as big as it ever was in its 36-year long history.

WWE has announced that the WWE SummerSlam 2006 will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota over two nights, joining WrestleMania as the only other Premium Live Event to be held multiple nights. Moreover, SummerSlam has always been presented as WWE’s ‘Big 4 PLEs’, along with WrestleMania, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble, and in recent years has been elevated to the status of the event to big stadiums.

With WWE Summerslam 2026 set in stone, Let us take a look at some of the early match predictions for the two-night spectacle in Minneapolis:

1. Tiffany’s WWE SummerSlam 2026 Homecoming Against a Queen

Tiffany Stratton is one of the most promising WWE Superstars who joined the main roster from NXT a few months ago. The Buff Barbie of WWE has gotten over with the WWE Universe in an instant and already made a statement on the big stage by defeating the likes of Naomi and Mia Yim. Furthermore, WWE Summerslam 2026 will be happening in Minneapolis, the hometown of ‘The Tiffy Time’ and it very well could see her going up against a resident Queen of the promotion.

Tiffany Stratton has mentioned several times in the last year that her dream opponent is none other than the 14-time WWE Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair who inspired her to become an in-ring competitor. WWE Fans are already loving themselves some Tiffy Time, and her organic rise to the tip could see her turning babyface sooner than later. Therefore, a match between the hometown hero Tiffany Stratton and a heel Charlotte flair could potentially headline the Biggest Party of the Summer in 2026.

2. The Tribal Chief vs The Beast: SummerSlam III

Another hometown hero that we could potentially see on the SummerSlam card in Minneapolis is Brock Lesnar. The Beast hasn’t been seen on the WWE television programming since SummerSlam 2023 amid his rumored involvement in Janel Grant’s sexual allegation case against Vince McMahon.

But if we could see Lesnar throwing down in a WWE ring again, the iconic opponent that comes to mind would be The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns. The Lesnar-Reigns rivalry is one of the most personal and heated rivalries of the modern era and the last time these two behemoths collided was at WrestleMania 38 when Reigns defeated Lesnar to unify the WWE Title and The Universal title. So, a potential third match at the show between these two will surely be an exciting addition to the two-day festivities of WWE SummerSlam 2026.

3. Cody Rhodes encounters the Wolf Dog

The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes fulfilled his destiny after he defeated Roman Reigns to become the new Undisputed WWE Champion at WrestleMania 40 in the main event. Around the timeline of WWE SummerSlam 2026, he potentially could see himself facing one of the most promising NXT Superstars of all time who has recently debuted on the main roster, Bron Breakker.

The Wolf Dog has made his name for himself as a dominant force to be reckoned with in WWE and created an indelible mark on the WWE Universe when he rag-doled multiple superstars in his debut match in the Men’s Royal Rumble match. By SummerSlam, he would have possibly taken things to the next level and a potential match with The Prodigal Son can elevate Bron to the main event status and cement himself as the next big WWE superstar of the modern era.

4. Molly Holly comes back for Big TIme

WWE Hall of Famer, Molly Holly is one of the greatest and underrated female wrestlers of all time. Fans have been clamoring for one last single match for the former 2-times WWE Women’s Champion. With the global juggernaut set to host WWE SummerSlam 2026 in Minneapolis, the hometown of the WWE Hall of Famer, the grand spectacle could be the perfect place for her to have her one last match.

Furthermore, a formidable foe for Holly at a stage like SummerSlam could be Becky Lynch. The Man has proven herself to hang on with the best of previous generations as seen in her matches with WWE Hall of Famers, Trish Stratus and Lita. Moreover, Becky Lynch also uses one of Molly’s signature moves in Molly-go-round with which Molly Holly has brought multiple championships home. So a match between the hometown hero and Lynch will be a huge blockbuster to watch at WWE SummerSlam 2026.
